"I’m delighted that the second tranche was led by New World Strategic Investment Limited, a highly respected and established firm that has a strong history of supporting the clean tech industry in Asia," said Phil Murtaugh, CEO of CODA Holdings. "I believe that CODA Holdings is at the forefront of one of the most exciting industries in the world and the closing of our Series D funding and strategic partnership with New World, continues to demonstrate the high level of international commitment that exists in developing and supporting the electric vehicle, EV propulsion and energy storage industries."
Joining New World were Indus Capital, Och-Ziff and high net worth individual investors. These new investors augmented CODA’s strong base of existing investors who participated in the first tranche of Series D round, which include Miles Rubin, CODA’s Founder; Steven "Mac" Heller, CODA’s Executive Chairman; AERIS Capital; Angeleno Group; Harbinger Capital Partners and Riverstone Holdings.
In addition to supporting the launch of the CODA sedan, Series D proceeds will be used for the development of its breakthrough solutions in energy storage and in the development of its proprietary EV propulsion systems.
